The latest edition of Fieldnotes

The publication’s lead article includes details of two reports published as part of the Geological Survey of Western Australia’s (GSWA) ongoing collaboration with the Centre for Exploration Targeting (CET) at The University of Western Australia.

Report 157 is a geophysical investigation of the region and Report 159 is a mineral systems prospectivity analysis of the Halls Creek orogen.

Both were funded by the Department of Mines and Petroleum’s Exploration Incentive Scheme (EIS).

Fieldnotes also reports on the Australian Geoscience Information Network (AusGIN) Portal going live.

AusGIN’s portal provides a single access point for data discovery and analysis of geoscience data from all of Australia’s State, Territory and Federal Governments.

There is also an article on GSWA working to produce a seamless geological interpretation of the Eastern Goldfields based on published 1:100 000-scale mapping and enhanced by new geochronological, geochemical and geophysical data, much of it acquired through the EIS.

Fieldnotes also covers:

  • The Mesoarchean plate tectonic evolution of the north-west Pilbara
  • The evolution of mafic and ultramafic rocks of the Mesoproterozoic Fraser Zone
  • What lies between – interpretations of the Eucla-Gawler deep crustal seismic reflection and MT transect
